11:01 pm
that's not a very rational instrument may make it similar to last week impact or they will result in last year's so-called. international news live for most go this is aussie with me us of our thanks for joining us the egyptian military has promised to uphold the country's international obligations as it takes control following the resignation of president hosni mubarak after eighteen days a widespread us sometimes violent unrest forced him out the armed forces assume power over a transitional period until a new leaders elected crowds continue to gather in cairo's tahrir square has had a day to brace for his removal world leaders including the president praising of our decision to stand down say he had finally given in to the voice of the people but some observers question america's sincerity says it was us political and
11:02 pm
financial support which have the dictator in power over three decades and that's all there to check out now reports washington's involvement in. politics is not laughing to and with the mubarak regime. in the west mubarak's departure was hailed as a triumph of democracy for gyptian is have made it clear that nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day. the u.s. congratulates egyptians for getting rid of a repressive leader it's a big change after washington sponsoring hosni mubarak for thirty years and turning a blind eye to widespread human rights violations in the country what have i been doing for the previous thirty years while mubarak was actually torturing people. putting down opposition by force barak was a bad guy but he was our bad guy and as long as we had some element of control and that was good for us america's close ally is out of power but some analysts say the
11:03 pm
u.s. is still pulling the strings united states has a long term alliance with israel a deep partnership with egypt we as a country have provided more than one hundred billion dollars in aid to both of these countries there's a real investment here the force now in charge in egypt is the country's military largely financed by the united states the army will be in power until egyptians choose their next president it is the second largest recipient of american aid in the world after his neighbor as well the u.s. is pumping billions of dollars into the egyptian military which gives washington huge control over the running of the country and it's sure although the official u.s. position is that it's up to the egyptian people to choose their next leader some analysts say it's very likely the country's next president will be subject to american approval what took place in egypt was a military coup in a military coup inside the aren't mubarak and suleiman of course they're also
11:04 pm
military men but there will be no posed by chief of the army and the minister of defense they have a very close relationship with the pentagon don't always very very close to robert gates they talked on the phone at least five times this past week so obviously washington will be supervising any sing that happens tahrir square in cairo now celebrates the end of rule by. an autocratic leader who restricted political freedoms and damaged economic progress so too did people on the streets of kurdistan and ukraine in recent years after so-called democratic revolutions with western approval but the leaders who came to power were later rejected by their own people the party of so many of these great people power revolution going on when. people discover but a lot of the might. be just a change of races and. some say the lesson that the west to learn from recent
11:05 pm
revolutions is to abstain from supporting a leader just based on how convenient they are for the west rather than how much they can do for their people going to check on r t washington d.c. . and british historian and middle east expert tariq ali says the u.s. has been playing a dangerous game while history unfolds in egypt. the attempts made by man mubarak's deputy to cry and crush the demonstrators through violence free. ben the choice is very clear either they call in the army to carry out a blood department buried square in front of the world and that was too risky an option for the gyptian army because it might have split the army the generals might have carried out the orders if the pentagon had approved them but young officers whose children whose families whose brothers and sisters involved in this uprising might have desisted so it was
11:06 pm
a very serious risk for washington and in the end they decided it would be safe to dump mubarak and mubarak then refused to carry out orders from the pentagon but only for twenty four hours he resisted for one day in the next day he was gone because the army told him he had to go and the ya me. freedom marshal. the defense minister as we've already heard is a close ally of the pentagon takes orders direct the big question washington has is nothing should happen to destabilize their permanent israel that is all they're concerned about and they're also concerned about the effects of this are people now on jordan on yemen and who knows even them saudi arabia and bahrain so regardless of what washington wants it can to try to control the situation. and in a few minutes more analysis of the ripples spreading out from the direction of the
11:07 pm
rats. our military expert examines how the president of afghanistan is trying to shield himself from a repetition of the bands in cairo and. believe me a lot of countries that are so vital for the interest we're paying so it's good for us to be in doubt you think. not this was so deep and can be you out before bankruptcy comes knocking the residents tries to find out on new york streets for. as americans begin looking to next year's presidential election a country in economic crisis potential candidates from the republican party gets out on issues including abortion gun ownership and the place of religion in public life but with the u.s. still fighting two wars abroad one of the biggest topics of discussion will be military spending. has been looking into some of the new political faces on the scene who could be vying for the white house. if you've been wondering who i
11:08 pm
am one of you. could possibly how we got on let washington co-op the tea party. one day become the next u.s. president. while i'm not at this time a candidate for the presidency i will decide by june whether or not i will become one of the if you came to the right party that's precisely what it was undervalued to see pack everything here the fact that that's the basis for the united states. it's just a stone's throw away and though he hasn't officially announced it it is going to take a lot more of the new rhetoric to put americans back to work it's going to take a new president all eyes were on mitt romney i want to make this very clear if i were to decide to run for president who according to a recent rasmussen poll leads obama in a potential presidential race in two thousand and twelve and who just recently
11:09 pm
opposed the new start treaty which would limit the amount of nuclear weapons in both the united states and russia and which was supported by leadership of both parties neustar needs our national security. and potential candidate michele bachmann had quite a few eloquent things to say about u.s. foreign policy particularly china with all the money that we owe china i think we might rightly say who is your daddy but in this interview when discussing foreign policy bachmann it wasn't joking this is the time where we need to be on red hot alert five alarm alert and instead of throwing back and taking our weapons off the table we need to go and another presidential hopeful has been gearing up for years now especially when it comes to dealing with iran and ahmadinejad he gets to wipe out tel aviv maybe the israelis use nuclear weapons to iran he would accept that in a minute. because she believes everybody into iran goes to heaven and everybody in
11:10 pm
tel aviv does and now he's really angry at the u.s. president the obama administration is wrong on terrorism wrong on iran wrong on the muslim brotherhood wrong on hezbollah but hating obama is where the agreement seems to end because this year here's the compromise that conservatives also will have to make we will have to look long and hard at the military budget was good we knew there had to be some dissension so it was some fresh faces are willing to say in with the new out with field but establishment republicans there may be the temptation to x. everything including the defense but still have something to say and the money to not only say it but also to believe that the united states is becoming the laughing stock of the world but when realistic ideas too often get drowned out you cannot say that the job wing of the military budget in the last ten years has all been
11:11 pm
spent wisely and that there's not any waste in the joke. you just be on you. in the sauce the r. t. washington d.c. . no matter who becomes the next american president he or she will have to face the growing challenge of a massive budget deficit it's carving topping one trillion dollars and some analysts say the u.s. is pas the point of no return also is new york resident lori haas honest to the streets of gotham to find out if people really think america is set to hit rock bottom. the u.s. has a new budget coming out can america ever go bankrupt this week let's talk about that well we're already bankrupt so it's like credit card debt i mean. can you go at what point you at the bottom and what point do you start screaming
11:12 pm
about it to much invested in dollars to let america go bankrupt so now we're something that someone else has to take care of. not right now but if anything happens there's going to other countries who are going to do that for us is that fair. that soulsby laid up on not saying that everything's all right rosy at this point we're certainly not at a critical point and i think what you're pointing out is the fact that we need increased global cooperation it's not just a problem that can be fixed unilaterally either within the within the euro or within the us economy it's something that has to be fixed globally how do you stop spending when you've got thirty three hundred million people to make sure that they're healthy and have enough food and all that kind of stuff. how do you. you. you have to. cut it other places maybe stop going to
11:13 pm
war with so many people. as a real work we mean there's a lot of countries that are surviving for the interest we're paying and so it's good for us to be in doubt you think. not this much is it ok that our country is built on a deficit system. if you look at a lot of companies now they are so no it's not but we should be built on a surplus. do you think the rest of the world needs us to be in that yes i do feel like questions like these are sort of useless to people like me because it feels like it has nothing to do with me at all whether or not you think america can ever go bankrupt the bottom line is with a deficit that continues to grow something's got to give one way or another. to come in the private approaching. five hundred mission is nearing its destination
11:14 pm
and over time someone told the scientific what's a fix parent is very real. hot the diploma. nothing breakdown between russia and georgia everyday lives look at home leads forced by politicians and. just as the result a horn became the signature sound of the soccer world cup in south africa last year so we're hoping a traditional instrument will prove a similar quieter craze for fun's at the european championships in poland and ukraine he's a mix of has been getting a practice. remember the whole mark sound of last summer's football world cup the distinctive drawing of the traditional south african horn. here. made its equivalent for the euro twenty twelve championship to be held in ukraine
